In March, Ainsworth reached consensus to become a WISE Congregation for Mental Health. WISE stands for welcoming, inclusive, supportive, and engaged. This step means Ainsworth is even more committed to educating ourselves and the community on the issue of mental health. Our goal is to reach out to and always provide support to those who suffer. As part of this effort, there will be an In Our Own Voice presentation at Ainsworth. In Our Own Voice is a program within NAMI, the National Alliance on Mental Health, that provides a personal perspective of mental health conditions. The presentation features leaders with lived experience sharing openly about what it’s like to have a mental health condition.
The presentation will be on Sunday, November 3 at 12:00pm in the sanctuary. If you want to learn more, click on the link below:
